Yesterday I had the most exciting time with Melody, this is her blog, http://thehouseonthesideofthehill.blogspot.com.au/
We knew each other years ago and recently caught up to each other through blogging, Just wonderful! We arranged for an Op shopping day and she picked me up and off we went, I am sorry to say that it was all a bit of a whirlwind experience and I did not write down what the names of the op shops we went to but we went as far as Bayswater. Love this street artwork on a telegraph pole.
We went to at least 6 op shops, This lovely roll of heavy weight cotton fabric roll was a real bargain at $20 and was the last thing I bought with Melodys help, (I was down to my last $10 and Melody very kindly gave me a $10 donation for Aussie Heros so that I could get it. The orange cotton curtain also to use for Aussie Heros at another store, The round tin is going to be for a pin cushion swap, I finally know what I am going to do for this swap, I am going to make a Christmas Cake pin cushion and it will be in the tin, Some fabric flowers to make a decoration out of, a couple of double decker tins for my sewing room, (I have a thing for tins!) a large roll of thread, ( love craft supplies), 4 bamboo table mats, Perfect for the kids when we do wet felting later on, some craft and art books and some quilting patterns. What a wonderful booty, all for $50 in total.
Patchwork with Gail B on Canterbury Road, Bayswater was a super surprise, this shop is in the back of a tile shop

I bought a rotary blade sharpener, this is going to be So very handy, Jodie Carleton Teeny teapots Creative Card, I love Jodies work, and some pre cut paper shapes hexagons, totally cool!
We also went to Spotlight and I got some leaflets on a charity drive they are having, we ate our packed lunch in the park surrounded by trees and birds, We had such a wonderful time that we are planning on doing it again in February next year, So Thank you Melody for such a wonderful time it was a blast!
